College Sports Teams in Alabama

The Tide, Tigers, Blazers & Bulldogs


Alabama College Sports Teams

Alabama College Sports Teams

With no major professional team in Alabama, college sports are kind of a bigdeal for residents of the Yellowhammer State, and it starts with the University of Alabama Crimson Tide.

A perennial powerhouse, the Crimson Tide football team are a huge draw in Tuscaloosa. Fans flock from all over the state to Bryant -Denny Stadium to witness the Tide as they take on rivals from the Southeastern Conference (SEC).

It’s not all football in Tuscaloosa, however. The Crimson Tide field a total of 21 varsity teams, playing home games at venues like Alabama Soccer Stadium, Coleman Coliseum, Rhoads Stadium, and Sewell-Thomas Stadium.

The southern city of Auburn doesn’t quite share the love for the Tide, however. In fact, the very mention of the Tide will usually elicit some passionate remarks from Auburnians, and why not? – the Auburn University Tigers are the pride of the Auburn, fielding 19 varsity teams of their own.

Fierce rivals of the Tide, the Tigers also compete in the SEC, playing home games across venues like Auburn Arena, Jordan-Hare Stadium, and Samford Stadium.

Over in the historic, central AL city of Birmingham, the University of Alabama – Blazers stake their claim as the number one team in the state. Check out UAB Blazers football team at Legion Field Stadium this fall as they tackle and trounce the competition within Conference USA (C-USA).

Nearby, in the Birmingham suburb of Homewood, Samford University features top-notch athletics of its own. The Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs field 17 varsity teams in the Southern Conference, playing home games at Seibert Stadium, the Pete Hanna Center, and Joe Lee Griffin Stadium.
